Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Needed a small dishwasher

Nate111222 1/19/2023

Was updating my farm house kitchen which never had a dishwasher. Couldnt fit 24" anywhere so this frigidaire 18" seemed like a good option. It's function is good, washes well. Fit and finish feels cheap though, especially $650+. Not bad, just very lightweight and flexible. I would buy it again, just with slightly lower expectations.

Small but mighty!

Aksnyder 1/16/2023

We love our 18 inch dishwasher. It was the perfect size for our kitchen without major cabinet work. We popped out one cabinet and it slid right in! It is small compared to your typical dishwasher but we are a family of three so it works for us. We use it sometimes 2-3 times per day and are happy to do so because it uses less water than washing in the sink. Cleans great. Quiet. We recommend it.

Broken down in just 2 times of using it, still not working after 4 months and hours to deal with customer service.

nhcustomer 1/5/2023

My old Frigidaire has been working great for 18 years. Got this new Frigidaire because the old one is too old to fix. Got it on Aug, after 2 successful loads, it starts getting the .4 (not i4 just a dot) error ever since. Made 5 appointments with technician and still getting the error. Frigidaire refuses to give my a replacement. The technician came up and just reset the error code then call it for the day. They finally replaced some parts in last appointment, but didn't test the it out saying they don't have time. Soon enough, the error come right back at the first load after the fix. Now I can't even get through the customer service phone line to get another appointment to check on the broken dishwasher.

Small Appliance 11/11/2022

I was worried about the smaller size unit but the efficiency and operation of this appliance is remarkable! I just got out of Basic Training and bought my first house. Being single I didn't need a full size unit and this definitely is doing the job!

Due to limited space, we searched for an 18" dishwasher. There weren't many to choose from but we liked the stainless steel interior of the Frigidaire as opposed to a plastic interior with other cheaper models. By cheaper I mean less quality not price because prices were similar. The thing we reall like about the Frigidaire model is how very quiet it is. Can't tell it's on! Very quiet. Good job Frigidaire!

The dishwasher has many options to let you choose from to clean your dishes. The only issue at this time I have is not drying good when you have it on the drying option. When I bought my new Condo all the appliances came with it. I may have to submit a claim to get that checked out.

Figidaire 18" Dishwasher Update

GregKatz 10/8/2022

We've had the appliance for 2 days and really like it. Prior, we had 2x 18" dishwashers and this Make / Model is fantastic; however, the only issue I have for the design engineers is to light up the control panel buttons so that we can see the name on the button without turning on the kitchen lights.

GIGSY 9/28/2022

Been using the dishwasher as much as possible, and the end results are fantastic! I enjoy adding even clean dishware and silverware to get that clean look too. Even when in use you can't hear it running.. very quiet as its operating.

Small but great dishwasher

Shari4 9/24/2022

I recently purchased an 18™€ Frigidaire dishwasher to replace a broken old dishwasher. The old unit ( not Frigidaire) washed dishes fine until it broke. It was very noisy. I paid to have an installation of my new dishwasher done from Home Depot. The unit was delivered 5 days later as promised and the installer came out a few hours later. He did a great job and the new dishwasher fit perfect in my little condo. I turned it on when the installer left. It was so quiet, that I thought it wasn™€™t working! The only time I heard anything was during the drain cycle. I have used several different cycles. My favorite is the 60 minute cycle. Dishes come out spotless and shinning. I am so happy I purchased this Frigidaire dishwasher. It exceeds my expectations.

18™€ Dishwasher

Jv9991 8/22/2022

Perfect size for my smaller kitchen. Dishwasher has a lot of the features a standard size does, which I found rare when looking for an 18™€ dishwasher. Only negative comment would be that even on heated dry, there is still a little bit of water on the dishes that need to be towel dried.

Good So Far

Busybeebeb 7/31/2022

I bought this appliance and installed it about 3 weeks ago. So far, it's performing well. The dishes are clean after the normal wash. The unit is also relatively quiet. I can hear it but it's not disturbing. I have to put on a heat dry for the dishes not to be completely dry.I have yet to try all the wash settings. But so far good and I hope it lasts. :-)

Perfect dishwasher for condo

Jumbles 7/20/2022

Remodeled my condo, which had a 24" dishwasher, by going to an 18" dishwasher and a smaller sink base I was able to add a set of drawers next to my range! I was hesitant because I wanted a good quality dishwasher. I've done several loads and am very happy with how clean the dishes are and the tupperware is even dry.

Relatively quiet, Can not see button options

MarkDsen 7/15/2022

It appears to be an adequate dishwasher. Even though it is one of the loudest rated 18" dishwashers (52dB), it is comfortably quiet. Our living room, dining room and kitchen are one large room. We start the dishwasher after dinner, and proceed to the living room to watch some tv. The only time we hear the machine is when it's draining. My main issue with the unit is the display bar. It is next to impossible to see the wording. I keep the manual handy, just to know what buttons are where.
